The Rubber-Between You and the Road (Semi Truck Tires)
Semi truck tires are an important and expensive piece of rubber between you and the road. Getting the most extended possible life out of your tires and having a comfortable and safe ride are attainable goals. Here at Werner Trucking we provide professional installation and get you the best possible life out of your tires.
A Longer Life
Get a longer life from your semi truck tires by being aware of pulling to one side or a wandering truck. These are signs that could be telling you something isn’t quite right. Maybe you have low tire pressure somewhere on the rig or perhaps misaligned wheels.
Save on Maintenance Costs
Want to increase your fuel mileage? Check your tire pressure. Proper inflation of your tires can improve your fuel mileage and save you significant dollars over the long haul on your fuel bill. Proper inflation will also help your semi-truck tires last longer reducing your overall maintenance costs.
You’re not only breaking the law, but you’re risking your safety if you run your tires with too low a tread. Low tread depth can cause you to lose traction, especially when road conditions are not there best due to bad weather. We can check your semi truck tires for depth quickly at our tire repair shop to make sure you are D.O.T. Compliant.
